Happening this month… Locomotor Skills 

This month we are beginning our Locomotor Skills Unit in PE class. We will be learning how to skip, run, hop, jump, shuffle, crawl and many more locomotor movements in all different kinds of directions and speeds. Once we master our basic skills, we will put them all together to participate in many different sports and activities throughout the year.  


You can review and practice these skills at home with your child. Ask them to show you how they: 

  • Skip
  • Hop (1 foot)
  • Leap 
  • Crab walk
  • Walk backwards
  • Roll 
  • Crawl (bear crawl, baby crawl)
  • Jump (2 feet) 
  • Side shuffle
